First of all, this is not a sponsored recipe/video to make you shop at Walmart.
I receive about where to get Asian ingredients from all of you daily bases so I thought I should make a recipe only from a regular grocery store. Since I’m based on U.S, I deiced to use the biggest and most common grocery store in U.S. Which is Walmart.
It was actually quite impressive selection what Walmart has on their Asian Food section. They Had a lot more than I expected. Depending on the region the selection may deferent, but in my experience, those little tiny town I’ve been had at least those basic ingredients- soy sauce, mirin, rice vinegar, sesame oil, rice and noodles.
You need to be more creative than going Asian grocery store to get whatever you need/want, but it definitely can fix a lot of my recipes I have on my website. Definitely check out your walmart of your local grocery store’s Asian food section, you might be very surprise.
Hope this recipe can attempt some of you guys to give a try to cook Asian at Home. 🙂
Good luck and have fun in your kitchen~!Print

Love Korean food. And your recipes
I made this recipe and my family loved, making it again right now. I was wondering would this recipe work well with chicken and if so chicken breast or thighs?
So happy to hear that you and your family enjoying this recipe~!! Yes, you can make this recipe with chicken! Both breast and thighs will work, perhaps half and half of them mix will bet the best in my opinion! 😉
I made this last night with rice and it was GREAT! So glad you got your stuff from WalMart because there is no Asian store near where I live. I lived in Korea for 4 years teaching English and I miss Korean food. So glad I found you on Facebook. I also follow your blog. Thanks again. =)
I will come up with more recipes like this Grergor! So glad this recipe could fix your Korean food craving..!!
This is such a tasty recipe, my husband and I love it! I couldn’t find pork shoulder or pork butt, so I used pork loin (cut in bite size). I also had extra green onion and added it in. Thank you so much for making us love Korean food that is easy to make.
I have both a Walmart and international market near me. What authentic Asian ingredients would you use here? Btw, my 8yo loves this dish! It’s a winner in my house.
This recipes is developed to show what kind of Asian ingredients your local grocery store like Walmart has. Mirin, soy sauce, sesame oil & seeds are very authentic Asian ingredients.
I really with there was a way that I could print these wonderful creations, but all I can manage to do is screen shoot and print from there. Gets annoying after so many wonderful recipes! Thanks for your help if anyone knows how to do it a much easier way.
If you go to the bottom of the post, there is probable recipes (one with the step-by-step pictures and another one with only text). Just click the pint button! 😉
Love your recipes! Looking for recipes using pork belly. TIA
i love this passionately. however, i add more garlic, more serranos, and also chopped green onion, too. all your recipes are fantastic! thank you, Seonkyoung!
Thank you for this recipe. I have made it several times with different cuts and chilis and it always tastes great.
Today I cheated using ginger garlic paste but it still works. I even used about 1 tsp aniseed in the marinade to mix it up.
This time I’m using pork belly. OMG!
This was a hit on an Asian food night with friends. I couldn’t find mirin at our Walmart so I subbed a dry white wine instead. I also reduced the sugar just a tad. It definitely has a kick with the Serrano peppers so I may reduce that a bit next time but that’s personal preference. It was delicious, thank you!
Thank you for the support! I’m so happy I could help out with my recipes!
